Eclipse’s Armageddon i795n460 SLi is a high-end gaming system that delivers stellar performance across the board. It’s also one of the least expensive power desktop PCs here.

Eclipse’s Armageddon i795n460 SLi is a high-end gaming system that delivers stellar performance across the board. It’s also one of the least expensive power desktop PCs here.

Based on the 3.06GHz Intel Core i7-950 processor, the Eclipse Armageddon i795n460 SLi power desktop PC is fast enough for all but the most demanding of users. Its 151-point score in WorldBench 6 is fantastic.

The Eclipse Armageddon i795n460 SLi power desktop PC's 23.6in Hanns-G display is almost imperceptibly smaller than the 24.6in model supplied by DinoPC and delivers the same full-HD 1080p screen resolution.

Individually, the Eclipse Armageddon i795n460 SLi power desktop PC's two GeForce GTX 460 graphics cards are less powerful than all but the iMac’s ATI Radeon HD 5750 – but as a dual-card setup, they beat all others in our gaming tests. The pair run relatively quietly together and with moderate power consumption.

The Eclipse Armageddon i795n460 SLi power desktop PC's Gigabyte motherboard supports up to three graphics cards, although the GTX 460 supports scalable link interface only in a dual-card setup. You also get SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0 support.

Also standard is 6GB of DDR3 system memory and the 1TB SATA hard drive, which the Eclipse Armageddon i795n460 SLi power desktop PC supplements with a modest 64GB SSD – the current must-have in any high-end PC.
